Crowthorne, Berkshire (PRWEB) October 19, 2009
Playing computer games is no longer the solitary pastime of geeks in their bedrooms. As World of Warcraft shows, with over 14 million subscribers from around the world, playing online games has become both a social and professional past-time. As the games become more complex, potential players are put off by the wide choice of games and the difficulty in getting started.
With their new site launch, TheGameGuideHQ.com (http://www.thegameguidehq.com) is setting out to solve this problem.
Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG) are changing the gaming landscape. With over 60,000 people playing together at peak times, these new games represent a change in the video game industry. As more companies try to duplicate the success of premier titles like World of Warcraft and EVE Online, gamers are faced with increased expenses and a bewildering range of choices.
The games themselves are expensive, and with monthly fees required to continue playing, gamers are looking for ways to make the most of their time - and to not waste their money.
By sifting through the available game guides, TheGameGuideHQ.com has hand-picked the most relevant and accessible guides, that are the best available at helping players achieve their goals. Whether gamers are looking to progress further within a game, learn how to play a new MMO, or just increase the virtual cash they earn, TheGameGuideHQ.com has a guide which can help.
A simple rating system makes it obvious at a glance what each guide can offer, and whether it is right for you. With games costing upwards of $15 a month, and guides costing between $30 and $80, making the right choice is essential.
TheGameGuideHQ.com was founded by Tom Kranz, IT Consultant and avid gamer, who has previously run an Internet Gaming Centre business:
"Growing up with classic games such as Elite on the BBC Micro got me interested in computer games at an early age. From typing in my own games from magazine listings, through to seeing the first 3D game, the first First Person Shooter (FPS) and finally the first Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG) it's clear that computer games have a lot to offer. What's equally clear, however, is that established players and developers often lose sight of how difficult and over-whelming it can be to get started in a new game - especially one that's online and has hundreds of thousands of players."
TheGameGuideHQ.com was created by gamers, to help gamers. New players who are frustrated or confused by complex, large MMOs, and existing players who are looking for new challenges. With simple, honest reviews of MMO guides, coupled with regular posts about game and industry news, this site was created to help players get more out of their games.
